Virus and Security

According to University Policy, you need to have  an up-to-date antivirus/security software package installed on your computer in order to access the Ferris wireless networks. You can also view the Business Policy in detail. We recommend any of these software below:



Note: Ferris will no longer be supporting the use of computers running Windows XP since there will be no further security patches released for the operating system.


If you get an error message stating your software is not accepted please contact TAC. We should be able to add it to the approved list. We also ask that all students run a virus scan at least once a week. If you do not see your particular antivirus or operating system please give us a call and we'll see if it can/will be approved and added to our list. If you have any questions, please contact us via one of the ways listed in the Contact TAC area.
